BEIJING, Nov. 11 (Xinhua) -- Ten individuals and 10 teams were awarded amid a nationwide activity for their outstanding contributions to the protection of revolutionary-themed cultural heritage and inheritance of revolutionary spirit, said the China Foundation For Cultural Heritage Conservation (CFCHC) Monday.

Launched by the CFCHC in 2008, the activity has been an influential event that awards prominent figures in cultural heritage protection and promotes their spirit to encourage public participation.

This year's activity, the 11th of its kind, was initiated in June and focuses on the protection of revolutionary-themed cultural heritage to "seek the inheritors and promoters of red genes," according to the CFCHC.

This year's awarded team winners include an in-house restoration workshop for calligraphy, painting and literature of the National Museum of China and a memorial site for the Red Army in northwest China's Gansu Province.

Since 2008, more than 100 individuals and teams have been awarded by the CFCHC. Enditem
